Hi Radford,

Tell the group about your computer, model #, when purchased, CPU, speed, amount of RAM, Video card, OS etc. Also list the type and size of HDD's you have, and check to see how full they are.

That will give everyone better information to consider to come up with some helpful suggestions.

Have you used a utility such as "DiskCheckup" to check the status of the drives' "SMART" error counters? I'm wondering if your drives are struggling to correct errors. If the SMART counters show "pending" or "reallocated" sectors, and especially if those numbers increase when you have your problems, then you've probably got a drive issue and it might be wise to replace it.

I'll give it a go now and get back to you, thanks

Are these SATA drives? DiskCheckup should show you all of the drives attached to SATA ports...

yes they are all SATA drives, i have now run hitachi's DFT andvanced test on the problem drive, which gave a result of 0x00 however whenever i try to move files to or from the drive i recieve a device I/O error and this code 0x8007045D

apperently this is a back-up error but all im trying to do is copy/move/delete files and the drive is internal (dont know if this makes a difference)
